Bag the Elevator: Scamper up a few flights of stairs to boost your heart rate, work productivity, and energy. You will feel a secret (or not-so-secret) feeling of triumph over the elevator crew. It’s okay to gloat.
Park Far Away: Even on our busiest days, you have that extra three minutes to park at the end of the lot. All those extra strolls add up over time.
Escape at lunch: Catch some sunshine and gossip. Grab a friend, coworker, complete stranger (well, maybe not…) and burn calories on your pre- or post-meal hike.
Drink. Water that is: Drink more. It gives you a reason to stretch your legs en route to the bathroom. It’s science, kids.
Get a Pedometer: Whether it’s an old school model or a new school app, keeping track of your steps will become a borderline obsession (in a good way). More steps equals more calories burnt. Hooray.
Dance: Maybe you look like a drowning octopus, but who cares? Whether it’s at a club or in your living room cleaning up: get moving. The vacuum cleaner is a great dance partner.
These activities will help keep your blood from clumping and get your fist-a-pumping. While one trip up the stairs instead of on the elevator might not seem like much, 365 days of it makes a huge impact. Power up, people.
